Police on Saturday arrested two youths for gangraping a 17-year-old girl and making a video of the crime at Ekta Nagar locality here on Friday night.

Their third accomplice is at large. The girl, a student of Class 11, has been admitted to the civil hospital with injuries after her medical examination was conducted on Saturday.

The accused have been identified as Navjeet Singh (20), a resident of Ekta Nagar, Ajay Kumar (24) and Sonu (24) of Chuggiti locality.

According to the girl's statement, she went to meet her friend at Ekta Nagar on Friday evening and when she reached near her house, Navjeet, who lives in the neighbourhood, forcibly pushed her into his house.

The girl alleged that Navjeet took him to a room on the roof and called his friends Ajay and Sonu. She alleged that Navjeet raped her and his friends shot the video and then they repeatedly committed the crime and made a video of it.

The accused then allegedly threw her outside the house and threatened her to keep quiet or they would circulate the video.

The victim went to her friend's house and narrated the incident to her after which her friend sounded the victim's mother.

The victim's family filed a complaint with Surya Enclave police post on Saturday morning following which the police registered a case against the three under Sections 376-D (gangrape) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the IPC, Section 67 of the Information Technology Act and Section 6 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.

In the afternoon, the girl was produced before judicial magistrate (first class) Mamta Kakkar and she recorded her statement. The girl's medical examination was conducted at the civil hospital and she was admitted there after her health deteriorated.

Later, the Surya Enclave police arrested Navjeet, son of a retired subedar and a student of B Com Part 1 at Lyallpur Khalsa College, and Ajay, a painter in the same locality who is already facing two theft cases. The third accused Sonu is yet to be arrested.

Assistant sub-inspector Satnam Singh said police teams had been conducting raids to arrest the third accused. Also, Navjeet's mother Lakhwinder Kaur is absconding after the incident. Singh said Kaur had been booked under criminal conspiracy charges as the girl had said that Kaur had locked the gate from outside when the accused pushed her into his house.
